How much longer

How much longer

A Poem by Daniel Gardner

Anger is starting to take over.....


How much longer
 For this I can not take
Day after day I put food on the plate
Never are things the way they seem
Lie after lie seem to seal my fate
Nothing I do seems to matter
No one seems to care
Even the one I love makes me feel despair
Things I do only turn out to be a few
Through blood sweat and tears i fight this world
Never seeming to win
Because it rips and tears
Emotion is harmful I am told
It keeps you from doing what your told
I can't seem to stop this
The ending result is priceless
I will rip it all apart
To pieces I will shred my heart
Soulless is the only true result

What you have written is something everybody is familiar with in their life……
You are not alone…..
You put all of them into writing…….
In a beautiful way…..Nice…
We cant do without ‘patience and tolerance’….

Fantastic poem. I really like your work. You write real things, not a lot of flowery-ness (is that even a word? lol, it's late) in your work, not many pretty words. Lots of grit and humanity. Great job! :D

Wow, many times have we felt this way. A very strong poem. I urge you to consider using punctuation. It will bring out the emotions and will have this piece read the way that you meant this to be read. Keep writing, Daniel!
